2 Teens Charged with Shooting Bald Eagle in Iowa

  • Photo
MONTEZUMA, Iowa -- 2 Poweshiek County teenagers face a federal charge for shooting and killing a bald eagle.

The Poweshiek County Sheriff says a neighbor saw the two 15 year-olds jump out of a car and shoot a bald eagle that was sitting in a tree near Montezuma Thursday.

The witness called 9-1-1 and Poweshiek County Sheriff Thomas Kriegel found the wounded bird. The eagle later died at a veterinarian's office.

The two teenagers now face a federal charge of killing a bald eagle, which carries a sentence of up to 2 years in prison or a $250,000 fine.

The two also face several state charges.

The Bald and Golden Eagle protection Act of 1940 initially made it illegal to kill bald eagles as an endangered species. It is still protected as the national bird.
